First National Bank president Kelly Stretcher says the new insurance office provides another piece to the bank’s portfolio of services. “We want to be a one-stop shop for our clients by providing banking, financial planning, and insurance services, all under one roof,” said Stretcher.
Stretcher explained that “The new insurance office, combined with our recent addition of Jonathan Jetter’s financial planning services through our Investment Center, means that our customers can take care of all of their financial needs in the same building.”
All-Star Insurance has appointed Felishia Phillips of Gilmer as the managing agent for the new office inside First National Bank.
Ms. Phillips comes to All-Star Insurance after managing the office of a large local drilling and manufacturing operation. Her insurance experience includes stints with AFLAC and Farm Bureau Insurance.
"We are fortunate to have someone with Felishia’s background join our agency," said Joe Dodd, president of All-Star Insurance Group. “Felishia will be a great addition to the All-Star Insurance family. We expect her to excel at her new office inside the First National Bank building.”
Ms. Phillips said the opportunity to open an office inside First National Bank was the main reason she joined All-Star Insurance Group. “I feel that having an All-Star Insurance office inside First National Bank will provide clients of both the bank and the insurance agency a real convenience,” said Ms. Phillips. “This office will allow customers to take care of both their banking and insurance needs in the same location.”
This is the third insurance office that All-Star has opened inside an area bank, joining locations at Security State Bank in Ore City and Security State Bank’s loan production office in Jefferson. All-Star Insurance Group is owned by First National Bank of Gilmer. Both First National Bank and Security State Bank are subsidiaries of First Gilmer Bankshares.
All-Star Insurance Group has been a trusted source of personal, business, and life and health insurance for more than sixty years, and is a member of the Trusted Choice family and the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas, which represents more than 1,800 independent insurance agencies in the Lone Star state.
All-Star Insurance agents represent multiple insurance companies; they are not employees of any single insurance company. An independent agent is able to comparison shop for cost effective and customized coverage for the client.
